About Us

The Muddy Boots Approach to Childcare… 

We offer a place of calm, full of engaging and stimulating activities specifically designed to ignite a child’s imagination and to encourage holistic learning and development. 


Our approach is child focused, with resources being low level and available for the children to self-select. A block of wood can be a phone, a car, a sandwich or simply a block of wood for building a tower and we encourage this thinking and creativity continually with staff available to scaffold and support but never interfere or judge.


This approach is taken outside into the garden, a large space with as many, if not more opportunities than the inside. It is our strong belief that children benefit from fresh air, mud, running and exercise and this is encouraged throughout the day with sessions being outdoors for as much of the day as possible. 


This no fuss, child focused approach to learning allows for every individual child to develop at their own pace learning about themselves as the incredible little people they are and preparing them for their journey through education and life. 

Our Classes

Muddy Boots Cocoons, cosy, nurturing spaces, full of engaging open ended play, designed to ignite our littlest learners imaginations, whilst ensuring they feel cocooned in love, security and at home.


"Sometimes the smallest things, take up the most room in our hearts"

Muddy Boots Caterpillars (because what toddler isn't wiggly!) - These rooms are for our 'new to walking' little ones and they stay here, in this safe space, surrounded by invitations to play until THEY are ready, nothing at Muddy Boots is done by age....


Instead we do everything by stage, children stay in their key group until they, their parents and their key worker feel its time for the next step.

Muddy Boots Butterflies, here is where our little learners spread their wings and learn to fly. Focusing on school readiness, exploring the wonderful world around us, letting their imaginations run free and securing who they are as indivuals.


Our beautiful butterflies leave us ready to embrace the next steps in their educational journey strong, independent and prepared for whatever comes next.
